Nice post, and yes need to give it more thought. I work in the construction industry sling with hobby woodworking. In designing a shop I am planning on a dust collection and an air filter.

Bad thing for me is that I smoke to. Need to give that up one day.

Thanks for the post.

Jam, I’ve dealt with asthma for most of my life as well. Luckily I’ve controlled it well enough to be able to enjoy being active outdoors. I got onto amateur bike racing in my thirties with the help of a hardcore marine! I still take two preventives daily and have a rescue inhaler. If I get sick I usually wind up on prednisone.

I no longer use power machines in my shop, I’m almost 100% hand tools. Much lower dust amounts. I also go out and exercise several times a week. Doing this I haven’t had to use the inhaler for more than two years now.

Thanks for the PSA and good luck going forward.

I Have died 3 times since 2013
I have bad lungs too I have a rescue inhaler and a nebulizer and take a steroid everyday to hope to stay away from the hospital!
I have been in a coma for over 14 days the first time
No fun

I wear a powered air filtering mask
It pushes air into the mask without me having to struggle trying to draw air from an old face mask
Anyway stay healthy
